A Long Walk Home by lazydesperados

As I walk down that old country road somewhere in between those corn fields. I hear them calling out my name. Walking in the footsteps of my fathers. This ain't no place for a restless heart. Wondering what they would think of me. As I take that long and lonely walk home. -Lazy Desperados- via 500px

Withstand by RHMiller

What is it that makes some sandstone stronger than that surrounding it? Why would some be strong enough to resist the mighty forces placed against it and not give way to the constant pressure and wear and tear? All I know is that when something or someone is strong and able to withstand and persevere, they can, with time... change the course of the forces around them.

Southern Skies by GreggB

I decided to reprocess this shot. The one I posted, wow, almost a year ago now, had some areas I wanted to improve. This one looks a touch better in my opinion, but still nothing I'd get with a start tracker I didn't have at the time. This is a single 30 seconds exposure. Mountains have been illuminated (for just a few seconds) by the raising Moon at first hidden behind the mountain to the right (not visible on the picture), hence the light and better than I expected exposure of Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy. I'm heading down there again in April with my astotrack and bigger telephoto lens. Looks like the high ISO noisy 30 seconds exposures are over ;-) View it on a black background.

pond sunset again by BKKoomler

This shot was taken at some ponds located in Boise Idaho. It is a beautiful location in the center of town, and with the stormy weather of late, the sunsets have been fantastic to watch. The light changes by the minute, and every shot is drastically different. This particular shot was interesting, because the sun was behind a band of clouds behind me, and I was trying to find some good light to capture. All of the sudden, the sun dropped just below the clouds, and everything became a rich golden color. It lasted no more than two or three minutes, so I just captured the shot where I stood, and this is what came out. via 500px

Dreamy Day by crazyaboutnature

Cruising all over the Palouse finding comps isn't as easy as one would think. Hundreds of if not thousands of miles of gravel and dirt backroads criss-cross Eastern Washington and Idaho. There are some real gems if you look hard. This shot wasn't so hard to find, in fact it was right along side of one of the highways. I passed this right up...then it took about a mile to process whether to stop and turn around to look a bit more at this long rolling fence line. The "Simpsons" clouds couldn't have been more perfect either. via 500px

En la provincia de León hay cientos de hayedos, pero que al de Ciñera de Gordon le hayan otorgado el premio al bosque más cuidado de España no es de casualidad... Es una maravilla. El invierno tiene su encanto, aunque estos parajes cobran todo su esplendor en otoño, dos meses atrás, cuando mantienen abundantes hojas de diferentes tonos en sus ramas, aunque me fue imposible fotografiarlo en esa época, el próximo año quizás... via 500px

Transported by sysaworld

Its a very windy and cold day in the Alps, im preparing myself to spend some hours here taking pictures in what will be an unforgettable night sky. Some snow wind-transported patterns suggest me to stop here for the sunset, so i use the perfect sunburst of my wide angle to warm a little those waves in front of me. Temperature is going down, will I survive all the night outside in company of a minus twenty degrees? I will show you with the next shot ! via 500px

Watchful Eye Web by undersoulphotography

During a night camping under the peak of Ben Lomond we were followed by about 7 Kea, they provided the perfect subjects to shoot with some epic landscape behind! I was only about 1.5m away from this guy for this shot, so cool! via 500px

Cuernos del Paine by PAkDocK

Sunset on a stormy day at Cuernos del Paine, Chile. Because bad weather is good photography weather, sometimes a ray of light between the clouds can give a more dramatic image than plain sunny daylight. The reward is way better with all the cold, rain and suffering!! Regards Chile, May 2013 ------------------------------------------------------------ Atardecer en los Cuernos del Paine, Chile. Tras un día de tormenta, la luz se coló entre las nubes, dando volumen al macizo de los Cuernos. La recompensa mereció la pena y el frío. Mayo 2013, Chile via 500px
